SOP Authorization Agreements


Many institutions and individuals may work together on a human subjects research project. The components of the research project may be distributed across more than one institution (i.e., collaboration) or some or all of the research procedures may occur at more than one site (i.e., multiple performance sites). This document describes the procedures for implementing Authorization Agreements about IRB review in these situations, after a decision has been made that an authorization agreement is necessary and appropriate.
